|To the Editor: McOmber’s valuable as councilman|

I would like to share some unsolicited thoughts on this November's At-Large City Council race. There are four candidates running but each one of us gets only two votes. This makes it all the more important we choose the best possible representatives. I would ask, like me, that one of your votes be for Robert McOmber. It has been my pleasure to know Bob for several years, and I know him to be an honorable and thoughtful man. Bob volunteers his time to many local organizations and is always willing to help with local events. For the past several years Bob and I have helped people cross at "Four Corners" during the "Classics on Main" car show. I was also fortunate to have served with Bob on City Council for two years. It was during this time I really came to appreciate Bob's near irreplaceable value as a representative to City Council.
As the chairman of the Finance and Ways and Means Committee, Bob has an exceptional understanding of the City's finances and budgetary issues. I know I relied heavily on Bob's expert advice as we steered the City through the economic downturn following 2008. Bob looks at every issue to come before City Council objectively and from multiple perspectives. Bob has no personal agenda, no axe to grind, and his primary concern is that all voices are heard and taken into account. I am glad that Bob has decided to run for another term as our at-large representative, and I ask you to join me in casting one of your at-large votes for Robert McOmber.
